RAMSI: A history in pictures is a photo exhibition charting the history of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI). Featuring over 2000 photos from the Solomon Islands, including during the country’s civil conflict known locally as ‘the tensions’, the arrival of over 5,000 police, military and civilians to the country in 2003, and the subsequent progress that has been made in Solomon Islands since.
The exhibition was primarily intended as an educational tool for the 15 countries that provide police, military and civilians to RAMSI, however its success was far beyond anyone’s expectations, and was seen by well over 30,000 people in Australia, Kiribati, New Zealand, New York, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
I oversaw the concept, design, printing and coordination and marketing of the exhibition, as well as the logistics of touring it around some of the most remote parts of the Pacific.
